Category – Movie
Content – Anna finds herself in a predicament – Her boyfriend has committed a crime and there is really only one way out for her in Russia. She cannot say no to Alex and the deal, so she begins her training. Once done with the training, her cover is be a high fashion model. So Anna works as a fashion model by day, Russian assassin by night. Working for the Russians, Olga and Alex keep Anna so busy she barely has time to breathe, let alone spend time with her girlfriend Maude. But Anna has been promised her freedom after 5 years, so she pushes on. However, she is cornered at a hit by the CIA, and either goes to prison or strikes a deal with them! All the while, all Anna has ever wanted was her freedom. But does she find it in the end? This movie has amazing choreographed stunts on the fight scenes, and there are a lot of them. After all, she is an assassin! While the assassin story has been done before, this one has some elements that are unique and make this movie very enjoyable to watch. This scores a 8.5 out of 10.
Acting – Well now, who knows who Sasha Luss is? I guess in the real world, she is a high fashion model. However, this movie proves that a pretty face can also act! She does a tremendous job, I believe this is even her first lead role? Amazing for a new comer to achieve such success in a high action movie. I hope the entertainment community knows the name Sasha Luss, cause she deserves to be in MANY more films. And she worked with some of the highest caliber of actors in this one, including Helen Mirren (who is deceivingly wonderful), Luke Evans and Cillian Murphy. You know a movie is worth a shot with these actors! Score is 9 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 52 min. A tad long I would say, although the way the story line plays out I cannot imagine this film being any shorter. There is a lot of deceitful plots to get through. This gets a 8 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for 21 Bridges – 25.5 out of 30
Recommended Watch – OH absolutely! when it comes to action, stunts and assassins, this one is fantastic!!!
